Update: Disabling my screen-darkening filter app allowed normal operation of the on-screen elements. Review went from 4 to 5 stars now! My fault! I realized a very few apps do not seem to be quite compatible with screen filters, and after some research, it seems to be more of an Android issue rather than a developer issue (maybe a certain API?). Original review: Very quick scanning. Even picks up multiple barcodes at a time. Problem with this update is the app ignores tapping on any of the on-screen elements. I let it decode a barcode, and, well, that’s all I can do. Share and Next buttons do nothing. Likewise for the menu and flash icons. Also cannot interact with the pop-up tips either. I must exit the app by using the home button and go back in to scan again. Previous version had none of these usability issues. But at least it can decode barcodes and quickly without fuss. I’m on a Note 3 running Lollipop. Here we provide PDF417 barcode scanner V 6.3.0 for Android 2.3.4++ PDF417 is an app for scanning several types of barcodes and QR codes.

Was looking for a free qr code scanner that did not have ads and did not datamine. This app only requires access to your camera. 5* for that alone.
